    I would not be in that line either. First issue is that is a chinese knockoff, second issue it is a knock off of a Ford. No thank you. If I ever won a ford in some kind of sweepstakes/drawing I would just sell it to buy a GM product or more custom crap for my truck.

    I bet the 'Asian' version of the F-150 does not include the 'Man Step'. They are smart enough not to copy a dumb idea.......Well then again, the did copy an F-150. You think it performs like the original?

    Haha...I 2nd that Sur.
    Not to mention, a lot of car manufacturers are starting to copy the look of other car makers just to boost sales. In example when I pull up behind the new Dodge Durango I think it's a BMW X3 or X5 because of the taillights.
